WindsorWrites @ UWindsor
By Julienne Rousseau
They laugh, they cry, they argue and, every year, a group of students at the University of Windsor see the product of their labours literally come off the presses. They are in Marty Gervais’s Publishing Practicum course.
This semester I am following the students in the Publishing Practicum as they work with a Canadian author to edit and publish a book of poetry from start to finish. My stories will document this process, with all its trials, tribulations and successes. With COVID-19 restrictions in place, running a practicum course like this is, to say the least, challenging.
At the same time, I will be telling another, related story. Did you know that the University of Windsor’s Creative Writing Program is one of the best in the nation? You know it now.
And it is the nexus of the wider writing community in Windsor and across Canada.
As you will see, the Publishing Practicum course is intricately weaved into “WindsorWrites,” as is Professor Marty Gervais and his team at Black Moss Press.
